Courtney Love made it into a Super Bowl commercial. Wait–what?

With the Super Bowl coming Sunday, all the advertisers who spent more than US$5 million for 30 seconds are trying to get the most of their investments by leaking their commercials early.

Doja Cat, who’s very hot right now, was tagged to appear in a commercial for Taco Bell. Instead of breaking into one of her own songs, she sings Hole’s “Celebrity Skin” from 1998. There are new lyrics, too, which means Ms. Love was very involved in the ad.

Take a look.

There’s even an extended behind-the-scenes look at the spot.

  • Hole has so many great songs on Live Through This and Celebrity Skin! I only hear them when I play them, and that’s a shame!

    Hopefully, this will get her name and music out there again!
